Luke Donald Finishes Strong At The British Open

Posted on July 23, 2010 by Thomas Rooney

Luke Donald shot a final round 69 at the British Open.

Luke Donald was all smiles as he finished positively at St Andrews to end up as one of the highest placed British players on the leader board.

After four days where he his form has been inconsistent, Donald saved his best until last as he completed his round with an eagle at the 17th and a birdie at the 18th for an impressive score of 69.

Speaking about the final stages of his tournament, Donald joked that he could “sell that finish for quite a few pounds to anyone in the last two groups”. It was a finish he enjoyed enormously and one which made the hard work of the previous days worthwhile.

It was a spectacular ending to what has been an average few days for the Englishman. He has performed solidly, without ever excelling – with the exception of the final two holes of course. The golf betting odds never had him challenging the leader.

An opening round 73 was followed by a 72, before two successive finishes of 69 over the weekend ensured a final score of five-under-par. Only 10 players sit above him in the final standings though, so he will be happy enough with the end result.

Ladbrokes golf betting pundits will note that he will want to take the momentum of the final couple of holes into the next tournament and hope to start positively so he isn’t forced into playing catch up once again.
